The NFL is headed into Sunday Night Football and has Monday Night Football still to play, but we’ve got some early odds to get you ready for Week 15. The end of college football’s regular season means this weekend brings the first Saturday slate of the season. We get an NFL Network tripleheader featuring Vikings-Bengals, Steelers-Colts, and Broncos-Lions. All three feature playoff contenders, which should make for a fun Saturday.

The Sunday slate is a little light of quality matchups, but we get some important games. The biggest will be Ravens-Jaguars on Sunday Night Football, but Cowboys-Bills should be a good one as well.

DraftKings Sportsbook unveiled opening odds for all 18 weeks back in May after the schedule was released. Those were pulled once the regular season got underway and the sportsbook re-opened the lines for Week 15 with a look-ahead line last week. Below, we’ve included the offseason opening odds, the look-ahead line, and the current line once it re-opens.

Here’s our full list of Week 15 odds at DraftKings Sportsbook. We’ll update once the odds re-open Sunday evening.

Chargers vs. Raiders

Sunday, December 10

Point spread: Raiders -2.5
Point total: 34.5
Moneyline: Raiders -135, Chargers +114

Wednesday, December 6

Point spread: Chargers -4
Point total: 42.5
Moneyline: N/A

May 12

Point spread: Chargers -1.5
Moneyline: Chargers -120, Raiders +100

Los Angeles struggled to move the ball after starting quarterback Justin Herbert was ruled out for the game with an injury. Expect Easton Stick to replace Herbert under center. Stick finished 13-of-24 for 179 yards in the team’s 24-7 loss to the Denver Broncos.

Las Vegas played a brutally boring game that nearly went into overtime tied 0-0. The Minnesota Vikings kicked a field goal late in the fourth quarter, and it was simply too much of a lead for the Raiders to overcome. Quarterback Aidan O’Connell finished the game 21-of-32 for 171 yards with an interception.

Pick: Chargers +2

Vikings vs. Bengals

Sunday, December 10

Point spread: Bengals -4
Point total: 40
Moneyline: Bengals -192, Vikings +160

Wednesday, December 6

Point spread: Vikings -1
Point total: 40.5
Moneyline: Vikings -118, Bengals -102

May 12

Point spread: Bengals -5
Moneyline: Bengals -205, Vikings +175

Minnesota may have a new starting quarterback for this game. Joshua Dobbs was given a lot of praise for his quick adjustment after getting traded to the Vikings. Still, he hasn’t played well recently and was benched in favor of Nick Mullens in the fourth quarter of the Viking’s Week 14 win over the Las Vegas Raiders.

Cincinnati got a scare when Jake Browning left the game holding his thumb on his throwing hand. He returned and helped the Bengals to a 34-14 win over the Colts. The Bengals were assumed to be down and out without Joe Burrow, but they are

Pick: Bengals -4

Steelers vs. Colts

Sunday, December 10

Point spread: Colts -2.5
Point total: 42.5
Moneyline: Colts -130, Steelers +110

Wednesday, December 6

Point spread: Colts -2.5
Point total: 39
Moneyline: Colts -130, Steelers +110

May 12

Point spread: Steelers -2.5
Moneyline: Steelers -130, Colts +110

The Steelers had back-to-back games against two-win teams and lost both games. The New England Patriots were shutout in Week 13, but that didn’t stop them from scoring 21 points and beating Pittsburgh. The Steelers started the season 7-4 but head into this matchup 7-6.

The Colts had won four games in a row ahead of their Week 14 matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals. They lost 34-14 as Cincy backup quarterback Jake Browning continued playing well, and the Indianapolis defense couldn’t stop them.

Pick: Colts -2.5

Broncos vs. Lions

Sunday, December 10

Point spread: Lions -4
Point total: 47
Moneyline: Lions -192, Broncos +160

Wednesday, December 6

Point spread: Lions -4.5
Point total: 47.5
Moneyline: Lions -205, Broncos +170

May 12

Point spread: Lions -2
Moneyline: Lions -130, Broncos +110

Denver got out to an early lead over the Los Angeles Chargers. They benefitted from Los Angeles quarterback Justin Herbert picking up an injury and being ruled out for the remainder of the game. The Broncos’ defense was enough to handle Easton Stick, and Russell Wilson finished with 224 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.

Detroit went on the road to face Chicago in Week 14. This was a close matchup the first time they played, and it was the Bears that came away with the 28-13 victory. The Lions move to 9-4 on the season but retain the top spot in the NFC North.

Pick: Lions -4

Jets vs. Dolphins

Sunday, December 10

Point spread: Dolphins -12
Point total: 40.5
Moneyline: Dolphins -600, Jets +440

Wednesday, December 6

Point spread: Dolphins -13.5
Point total: 40.5
Moneyline: Dolphins -750, Jets +525

May 12

Point spread: Dolphins -1.5
Moneyline: Dolphins -120, Jets +100

The Jets and Dolphins face off in a game that has some important implications for both teams. The Dolphins are rolling and could move closer to a division title. The Jets have managed to get on track to some degree and find themselves with an outside shot at a playoff berth.

Miami closes out Week 14 when they host the Titans on Monday Night Football. New York put together an impressive performance in beating the Texans 30-6 on Sunday. Zach Wilson threw for 301 yards and two touchdowns and while Houston does have a shaky defense, it was still impressive execution. They also shut down C.J. Stroud and the recently impressive Texans offense. They won’t do the same against Miami, but it’s worth taking them with double-digit points.

Pick: Jets +12

Giants vs. Saints

Sunday, December 10

Point spread: Saints -6.5
Point total: 36.5
Moneyline: Saints -258, Giants +210

Wednesday, December 6

Point spread: Saints -6
Point total: 36.5
Moneyline: Saints -238, Giants +195

May 12

Point spread: Saints -1
Moneyline: Saints -115, Giants -105

This is an odd matchup to decide on coming out of Week 14. The Giants don’t play until Monday night when they host the Packers, but they’ve won two straight over the Commanders and Patriots. Tommy DeVito has shown some decent life, but how much is due to playing two of the worst teams in the league?

They will travel to face a Saints squad that is tied atop the NFC South at 6-7 after snapping a three-game losing streak with a 28-6 win over the Panthers. Their six wins have come against a mix of bad and mediocre teams. The Giants fit that mold, so I’m inclined to take the points, even if betting on Derek Carr gives me the heebie-jeebies.

Pick: Saints -6.5

Falcons vs. Panthers

Sunday, December 10

Point spread: Falcons -3
Point total: 35
Moneyline: Falcons -148, Panthers +124

Wednesday, December 6

Point spread: Falcons -2.5
Point total: 35
Moneyline: Falcons -130, Panthers +110

The Falcons had WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg spear a Buccaneers fan during pregame warmups to hype up fans. It almost looked like this ritual would work to fuel Atlanta to a win, but a late touchdown from Baker Mayfield secured the 29-25 victory for Tampa Bay. At least Atlanta can try to rebound against the one-win Carolina Panthers.

There are certainly plenty of instances of quarterbacks struggling as rookies and going on to lead successful careers. They arguably would all have shown more development and progress this season than Young has. Carolina will be looking to avoid its seventh straight loss while trying to show some form of improvement.

Pick: Falcons -3

May 12

Point spread: Panthers -1
Moneyline: Panthers -115, Falcons -105

Buccaneers vs. Packers

Sunday, December 10

Point spread: Packers -3.5
Point total: 42.5
Moneyline: TBD

Wednesday, December 6

Point spread: Packers -3.5
Point total: 43.5
Moneyline: Packers -180, Bucs +150

May 12

Point spread: Packers -3.5
Moneyline: Packers -170, Bucs +145

The Bucs are officially in first place in the NFC South. They beat the Falcons on Sunday and that coupled with the Saints' win over the Panthers created a three-way tie atop the division lead. Tampa gets the edge based on record against common opponents. Baker Mayfield threw a pair of touchdown passes and punched one in as well on the ground. They looked good against an always-shaky Falcons squad, but it’s to be expected against bad teams.

They face a Packers squad that plays their Week 14 contest on Monday Night Football when they travel to face the Giants. Green Bay has won four of its past five, including a home win against the Chiefs and a road win over the Lions. Jordan Love is emerging as a legit QB for them and they could come into this game only two games back of Detroit for first place. They’re a legit playoff contender and the kind of team the Bucs will struggle against.

Pick: Packers -3.5

Bears vs. Browns

Sunday, December 10

Point spread: Browns -3
Point total: 38.5
Moneyline: Browns -148, Bears +124

Wednesday, December 6

Point spread: Browns -2.5
Point total: 37.5
Moneyline: Browns -148, Bears +124

May 12

Point spread: Browns -3.5
Moneyline: Browns -175, Bears +150

Are y’all prepared to bet on Joe Flacco in 2023? The Browns have named him the starting quarterback for the rest of the season after a 311-yard, three-touchdown performance in a 31-27 win over the Jaguars to firm up their spot atop the Wild Card standings.

The Bears have won three of their past four and have climbed to potentially within a game of a wild card berth. Chicago upset the Lions 28-13 in Week 14 as Justin Fields threw for 223 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 58 yards and another score. The Browns bring a tougher defense, ranked second in DVOA. I’m not comfortable betting on Joe Flacco, but if it’s going to be against anybody, it’s the Bears.

Pick: Browns -3

Texans vs. Titans

Sunday, December 10

Point spread: Titans -1
Point total: 37
Moneyline: TBD

Wednesday, December 6

Point spread: Texans -3.5
Point total: 42.5
Moneyline: N/A

May 12

Point spread: Titans -3
Moneyline: Titans -150, Texans +130

This game just got a lot more interesting. The Texans lost an ugly one to the Jets in Week 14, but more importantly, star rookie QB C.J. Stroud suffered a head injury and was placed in the concussion protocol. He was not playing well before the injury, but the concussion is the bigger concern. The Titans will play their Week 14 contest on Monday Night Football against the Dolphins.

Pick: Texans +1 — if you think Stroud clears the concussion protocol

49ers vs. Cardinals

Sunday, December 10

Point spread: 49ers -14
Point total: 46.5
Moneyline: 49ers -800, Cardinals +550

Wednesday, December 6

Point spread: 49ers -13.5
Point total: 46
Moneyline: 49ers -700, Cardinals +500

May 12

Point spread: 49ers -6.5
Moneyline: 49ers -265, Cardinals +225

San Francisco took on a Geno Smith-less Seattle Seahawks in Week 14. Quarterback Brock Purdy threw for 368 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. Wide receiver Deebo Samuel had seven receptions for 149 yards and a score.

Arizona was on its bye week last week but picked up a win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in its last game. Despite being underdogs on the road, the Cardinals won 24-10, with running back James Conner finishing with 105 yards and two touchdowns on 25 carries. Tight end Trey McBride had 89 yards and a touchdown on eight receptions.

Pick: 49ers -14

Commanders vs. Rams

Sunday, December 10

Point spread: Rams -6.5
Point total: 48.5
Moneyline: Rams -310, Commanders +250

Wednesday, December 6

Point spread: Rams -5.5
Point total: 45.5
Moneyline: Rams -238, Commanders +195

May 12

Point spread: Rams -1
Moneyline: Rams -115, Commanders -105

The Commanders are coming off the final bye week of the season. They come out of the bye week having lost four straight and nine of their past 11 after starting the season with two straight wins. Losses to the Cowboys and Dolphins are one thing, but a 12-point home loss to a bad Giants squad is not going to cut it. They dealt away their two best pass rushers and it’s no surprise the defense has gone from bad to worse in a hurry.

The Rams are coming off an overtime road loss to the Ravens. They had won three straight to climb back into the playoff chase and will be looking to get back on track. They dealt with a physical long game in this loss and one has to wonder if this will carry over. The Commanders stink, but they’re at least well-rested.

Pick: Commanders +6.5

Cowboys vs. Bills

Sunday, December 10

Point spread: Bills -2
Point total: 49
Moneyline: Bills -125, Cowboys +105

Wednesday, December 6

Point spread: Bills -1
Point total: 49
Moneyline: Bills -115, Cowboys -105

May 12

Point spread: Bills -4
Moneyline: Bills -190, Cowboys +160

Chiefs vs. Patriots

Sunday, December 10

Point spread: Chiefs -9.5
Point total: 37.5
Moneyline: Chiefs -410, Patriots +320

Wednesday, December 6

Point spread: Chiefs -10
Point total: 37.5
Moneyline: Chiefs -455, Patriots +350

May 12

Point spread: Chiefs -3.5
Moneyline: Chiefs -175, Patriots +150

Kansas City fell to Buffalo 20-17 on Sunday and the reigning Super Bowl champs are reeling a little bit as it has now dropped three of its last four games. The Chiefs are still sitting atop the AFC West standings, but they need to be leery of a Broncos team that’s one game out and creeping up behind them.

Despite its best effort, New England failed at tanking in Week 14 and accidentally picked up the 21-18 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Quarterback Bailey Zappe threw for 240 yards with three touchdowns and an interception.

Pick: Patriots +9.5

Ravens vs. Jaguars

Sunday, December 10

Point spread: Ravens -3
Point total: 43.5
Moneyline: Ravens -162, Jaguars +136

Wednesday, December 6

Point spread: Ravens -5.5
Point total: 39.5
Moneyline: Ravens -218, Jaguars +180

May 12

Point spread: Jaguars -1
Moneyline: Jaguars -115, Ravens -105

The Ravens fought off a tough Rams squad in Week 14, winning on an overtime walkoff punt return touchdown. When Baltimore is on their game, few teams are nearly as good. And yet, as we saw against the Rams, if they’re not entirely on, they’re beatable.

They face a Jaguars squad that is coming off a tough loss to the Browns in Cleveland. Trevor Lawrence played through an ankle sprain and threw for three touchdowns, but also three interceptions. He’ll get some more time to rest the ankle, but without any games off, you have to wonder how much longer it will take to get his ankle anywhere close to 100%.

Pick: Jaguars +3

Eagles vs. Seahawks

Sunday, December 10

Point spread: Eagles -4.5
Point total: 47
Moneyline: Eagles -205, Seahawks +170

Wednesday, December 6

Point spread: Eagles -4
Point total: 47
Moneyline: Eagles -192, Seahawks +160

May 12

Point spread: Eagles -2
Moneyline: Eagles -125, Seahawks +105
